What’s the Difference Between Family Dentistry and General Dentistry?

Dentists practicing either type of dentistry are highly educated in their fields. General dentists primarily treat adult patients, while family dentists treat patients of all ages. 

The key difference between family dentistry and general dentistry is that a family dentist is trained and experienced in providing dental care to treat children through adults. A family dentist has the ability to tailor prevention and treatments for individual patients based on the particular needs and risks associated with specific stages of life.

Why Choose a Family Dentist for Your Family’s Dental Care?

Whether you have children or not, family dentistry offers a variety of benefits to patients.


Family dentistry saves you time because everyone in your family can access the care they need at a single dental practice. 

There’s no need to search for a different dentist for each member of your family, and we can book all your family’s appointments at times that are most convenient for you. Everyone can access the care they need at a single dental practice. 

Additionally, choosing a family dentist simplifies the billing process since all of your family’s insurance and billing are handled at the same office. 

Highly Personalized Care

Rather than the one-size-fits-all approach of general dentistry, family dentistry addresses patients’ unique needs at every age, which means your entire family receives personalized care. 

Dental Care Founded on Relationships

The nature of family dentistry allows our dentists to develop long-lasting doctor-patient relationships. With a family dentist, you and your children can continue seeing the same dentist throughout your life. Our dentists become more familiar with your dental and medical history and all of your unique needs. 

Dental Care History in One Location

In addition to building relationships with our patients, continuing to access dental care at the same practice throughout life means that your dental records are easily accessible at a single location rather than spread throughout various practices.
